Location: Yellowjacket Union
The University of Wisconsin-Superior Athletic Department will be hosting a luncheon on Thursday, April 10 to celebrate the completion of its video in support of the You Can Play project. You Can Play is a national campaign dedicated to ensuring equality, respect, and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientation. There is no cost to attend the event and a light lunch will be served. The public and all local media are invited to attend. The event at UW-Superior will feature a taped message from Derek Schell, the first openly gay NCAA Division II basketball player from Hillsdale College. The keynote speaker for the day will be Scott Cooper, a 2013 graduate of Augsburg College who played two seasons as an openly gay member of the Auggie football team. The luncheon will close with the public unveiling of the UW-Superior You Can Play video. The video, which is the culmination of a year's worth of work, will feature nearly 70 Yellowjacket student-athletes and coaches that have declared their commitment to making locker rooms and fields/courts of competition safe places for LGBT athletes. With the release of the video, UW-Superior will join professional, college, and high school sports teams across the nation who have also pledged to make their sports teams inclusive.
Yellowjacket Union is located on the UW-Superior campus, 1605 Catlin Ave. For maps and directions to campus, visit www.uwsuper.edu/directions.
